Gastric Byass Surgery Malpractice Lawsuit Filed in Grand Rapids

Comments (1)

Our firm recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit in the Kent County Circuit Court alleging that a bariatric surgeon was negligent in the treatment of our client after her bariatric surgery procedure.  Our client, a 60 year old woman, underwent a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure and has hospitalized after the surgery.  She was subsequently discharged from the hospital even though she had signs and symptoms of a gastric bypass leak

After her discharge from the hospital, she returned home for recovery but was still in significant pain and discomfort.  Her husband rushed her back to another local hospital where the need for emergency surgery was determined.  Emergency surgery was performed but she now has significant injuries as a result.  The suit seeks damages for pain and suffering, medical expenses, attendant care services, and other damages allowable under the Michigan medical malpractice laws.

I had a revision that had to be done 8 months later because it wasnt done right the first time. after pick lines and feeding tubes my surgeon had me have 8 upper gi or scopes before anyone would do anything about my condition i went through hell picking the right surgeon is critical
